Not really, but I've noticed I seem to push harder when there's a particularly fit woman in my eyeline at the gym. I suppose it makes sense on a base animalistic level, but it's still odd, isn't it?

4553 Rests between reps
I've been doing a workout consisting of chin up, dip, squat, stiff deadlift, curl, OHP, and calf raise all for one set of 20.

Instead of just bouncing the weight up and own and cranking out the reps as fast as possible I've been doing the reps with a short pause after each one. It's about 5 seconds or 1-2 breaths. It takes about 3 mins to do each set of 20.

By slowing down and doing each rep individually it improves the mind-muscle connection and prevents you from getting too out of breath. Total workload is also higher since the rests allow you to use more weight. One set done in this fashion is probably worth 2 or 3 sets in normal continuous style.

4540 working in the sun
I'm about to have to spend a few days working like a bastard in the sun. Last year, doing the same job, I gave myself quite annoying heatstroke - stopped sweating, started shivering, brain went a bit squiffy and had very annoying muscle cramps the following nights. This happened both days we baled.
So, this year, I'll be drinking much more, but other than that, I can't really see how to make things much better. I can't sanely take breaks or sit under air-con. (Chasing a tractor, making hay while the sun shines, so a lot of throwing bales around, and generally jogging along, doing manual stuff, fixing things that break). I plan to start earlier in the day this time, but that involves getting the other person to get their arse in gear. It's not a given.
So - any hints on avoiding the pain that is heat stroke / heat exhaustion? I'm easily fit enough to do what needs doing, but the heat is a fucker.

I'm not sure whether to post this here or in emo, because I feel on the brink of just giving up. I don't know how to go on, I'm trying the services but they don't care. I'm desperate.

I am a 26 year old male, I am 10.7st and 5'10. I suffer from extreme health anxiety. It's usually an obsession with cancer. The past 3-4 months I have had a pain in my left hand side, To the left of my belly button.(or 'my' right, looking down). It's a sharp pain, feels quite pinpoint (literally the edge of my belly button moving outwards), but is difficult to recreate by pushing down on the area. I've found it a few times but it's not easy. It seems to come and go, and can sometimes feel more generalised in the area. As if it's spreading outwards. Simply put I am terrified to the point of non function that it is some sort of cancer.

I have no noticeable weight loss, I have not lost my appetite. I have not thrown up. No blood in stool. There is no history of stomach cancer in my family. However I do have Ibs and have been gassy for a while. Stool can be soft/pat like, or sort of rough and jagged. I've been to 3 doctors. All of which looked at my history and rolled their eyes. They all did a feel of the area and said there was nothing abnormal. The last Dr (yesterday) gave me laxitives because she said my colon was very full. But I've had this issue for months, I doubt it has always been.

Mental health is a real issue for me and I have been referred in Jan, but no reply as of yet.

The pain is not getting better. It seemed to dissappear for about a week or 2,but its come back as bas as ever.

I feel so unbelievably unhappy with my life I am worried. I can't sustain this life of worry and depression. I leave my desk at work and cry, I am looking for re assurance. I am begging for it in fact.

I'd suggest getting in touch with Anxiety UK. They have a telephone advice line and offer a range of reduced-cost therapy services.

https://www.anxietyuk.org.uk/

The evidence suggests that good self-help books can be almost as effective as face-to-face therapy. Most local libraries now have a Books on Prescription section, with a selection of self-help books recommended by health professionals. The recommended book for health anxiety is Overcoming Health Anxiety by Rob Wilson and David Veale.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Overcoming-Health-Anxiety-David-Veale/dp/1845298241

If you're feeling really down, I'd encourage you to call The Samaritans on 116 123. Calls are free on any network and they're available 24/7. You don't have to be suicidal to call - they're ready to listen to whatever you have to say.

I've just pissed the bed. Proper pissed the bed. I've left my other half, still fast asleep, in pissed soaked sheets while I've slunk off to the living room, wrapped in a blanket and shame.

I didn't drink a great deal yesterday and I went for a wee before going to bed, so I'm not sure what else I can do. I had a dream which I think tied in with me pissing, but I woke up after the event and too late to do anything about it. I've pissed in my sleep before, but it's too infrequent to worry about and is usually such a little dribble that I could lie to myself and say it was spunk; this is the first time I've blasted the bed, and all of my bedclothes, with loads of piss.

I pissed in a mates living room earlier this year. I'd been drinking a lot, I was asleep on the sofa and another friend on the floor. I got up in the dark, he asked what I was doing, and apparently I said "not pissing in the river." He thought I was joking, but then I really did start to piss, so he was shouting that I should stop it, and I kept saying "I'm not even pissing," then he shouted our mutual friend and I woke up mid-stream. I tried to do the same thing a couple of months later and found out why you don't wake up sleepwalkers. I started throwing punches at him, don't remember that though (cos I was asleep, obviously) and it turned into a full fight. So I just woke up in the middle of a fight.

Still got the better of him though.

Also, about ten years ago I did it at an ex-girlfriends house, again after a lot of alcohol that evening, but unique to this incident, it was all over he dads clothes which were drying on a clothes horse. He wasn't happy.

Jokes aside though, the real question you should be asking is why you didn't *at the very least* piss on her tits. I understand that you were asleep, so a proper arse-pissing would be a tricky manoeuvre - but come on.

It's happened again, the first time in about 20 months.

On this occasion I can't recall what I was dreaming about, so it's not the scenario of what's happened previously where I've pissed in a dream and it's actually happened in real life and I don't think it was preceded by a wet dream either.

I think it's because I didn't go for a wee immediately before going to sleep. Fortunately it was a relatively small trickle, but enough to dampen my bed clothes and the bedsheets a little, as I needed a monster piss when I woke up.

3936 Fat bastard weight loss thread
Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

Unless you're failing finger sized rails of gak before popping to the shops (don't worry we've all been there) there's no way your heart rate should be that high. I'm 110kg, I know the treadmill I use takes my weight and BMR over exercise time into account when calculating its calorie total and yet it takes me me almost an hour of walking at 4.5 KM/H at a 4% incline to burn close to that number of calories.

Mate is that a RHR taken when you're sitting in bed after waking up after a good night's kip or a "RHR" taken at fuck knows when after a day of caffeine, commuting, steak fucking bakes and god knows what else?

No one should be waking up with a RHR of 90 unless you're really making waves as a next generation pharmacological power user / using K Cider as your bedtime tipple or have some kind of serious heart issue. (Obviously I fucking hope it's not the second one as you haven't mentioned anything of that kind but Jesus lad, if your RHR is 90 standing up and going to the fridge is basically sending you into tachycardia. Go see a fucking doctor, sharpish).

It's from actual rest.

>Go see a fucking doctor

I've seen plenty of doctors. It's fine, apparently. It's definitely about 90. Blood pressure is great, too. Post surgery a few years ago I was sat at 125 while lying in bed, and also on morphine. (no, really) They were checking my vitals every hour or so and did a couple of EKGs and nobody was particularly concerned. I was pretty fucking concerned, to be honest, but I was told it was high but not unusual, especially considering my normal RHR was already high.

I haven't done drugs in about six years and I don't drink, or have anxiety or a bad heart or anything. I'm 'healthy but a bit odd' according to medical professionals.

Well if you've done echos and EKGs and a treadmill stress test and nothing worrying came up who's a random prick on the internets to say otherwise? Cholesterol and blood pressure being good is good news, maybe get your triglycerides and most importantly your homocysteine levels checked (just badger your gp until they sign the damn bloodwork papers).

If those all check out then I guess your ticker just likes to tick a little bit faster than normal.

I often get a strong feeling of tightness in the throat after a long day. It's unpleasant and makes it difficult to breathe deeply.

Is there a particular cause for this, or is it just stress and fatigue? Can I somehow minimise it?

Lifelong asthmatic (diagnosed at nine) and self-inflicted (in late 20s/early 30s) leisure injury inflicted generalized anxiety / panic disorder sufferer here.

Telling the difference between an asthma attack and generalized anxiety is difficult at the best of times; nevermind differentiating between a full blow panic attack and a cardiac event.

One thing I've learned is that if I get up and go for a short walk and do something utterly distracting like phone my totally batty mum who'll fill be ear with who did what with her dustbins like it's a some bin men version of game of thrones makes the symptoms go away then it's likely just anxiety. If that doesn't help it's asthma. This was all stuff I learned while doing CBT to be able to differentiate between "I'm having a panic attack / I'm dying panic more".

Now that I'm fully diagnosed and all I just take a puff on my inhaler, pop a 0.25mg clonazepam wafer under my tongue and play a mobile game until whatever goes away (usually pretty quickly).

Anyway I hope that helps some, despite being a git garbled (I'm currently in the grips of some fever other in the 100-102oF range. I think I'm going to eat some paracetamol and go back to bed. Fuck this.)

Certain. It's never been a problem for me. I eat clean and my digestion is pretty good -- I've only had heartburn a handful of times in my life.

>>4518

I try to eat at least one piece of fruit (generally an apple) per day. Thinking back to when I didn't (low carb etc.), I still had similar symptoms -- no noticeable difference. I don't have any allergies I know of.

>>4519>>4520

This is a good shout. My siblings were diagnosed with asthma as kids, and while I did experience some throat/chest tightness, for whatever reason I coped and was never given an inhaler. They also had allergies, where I didn't seem to get the symptoms -- maybe I adapted to dog fur, pollen, whatever.

One thing I did get, though, were persistent throat infections throughout my childhood. It's sometimes hard to tell whether they're inflamed or not, but it's certainly easy to imagine there's a kind of persistent immune reaction going on around my tonsils. As an aside, the infections were something of a blessing as I became obsessed with oral hygiene since. I gargle mouthwash and water once per day. I could experiment with using saltwater or plain water rather than mouthwash... Or I could buy a waterpick and give my tonsils a blast each day.

The most noticeable factor is definitely fatigue and tension. The feeling simply isn't there when I'm well rested. I'm thinking this may a stress and general inflammation type thing -- I think I'll try introducing regular breathing exercises and try to get more kip.

4483 Going barefoot - Some thoughts from an armchair anthropologist
This thread isn't meant to be an argument for or against barefoot running or walking, or whatever associated footwear is best.There are already a million and one youtuibe videos, forums posts, blogs etc. all covering the exact same arguments.
I made this thread because of a shower thought I had that I wanted to write down somewhere.

So the preamble; giving people padded heels generally fucks up their posture. You can slouch, your bum sticks out, your shoulders hunch up, you walk by swinging your legs and your head bobs up and down. It's awful and if you start walking like that it takes a lot of effort to retrain yourself to walk upright with a good posture.
When you walk or run barefoot, (or in minimalist shoes which meet all the criteria, and very few truly do), it's nearly impossible to walk with bad posture (at least for any significant distance). You have to forefoot strike, which forces you to walk upright, shoulders back, and you have to use your whole body which means moving your hips and core muscles.
So then, people ask if barefoot is so amazing, why did people ever start to wear modern-style shoes to begin with?
The reasoning that pretty much everyone always makes is along the lines of "it's more comfortable" or "you can run faster and not hurt as much" or things along those lines.
The arguments never quite add up, and this adds fuel to the arguments and cunt-offs that surround the subject.

-----------------------------------

Finally this leads to the point of this thread. I am a convert to minimalist running and walking, but my argument is nevertheless against it. And as far as I can remember, it's a reason that I haven't seen anywhere else.
The reason that our ancestors started wearing shoes with heels, and partly why people still do today, has little to do with comfort or fashion or sporting performance, even though these are the conscious reasons that everyone believes in.
The real reason:
Swagger.

I think our environment has become a lot tamer since the shoe was originally invented in a way that you don't give credit. I go mountaineering and if you attempted some of the stuff I've done barefooted your foot would either get cut off or fall off. To me the necessity of shoes feels self-evident from what I expect of them.

I would have presumed the increased thickness of the heel would have come from a pure mechanical position. either based on that that is the area that would wear down quickest so making it thicker would mean you could go longer without replacing shoes or that if you step on something you put your full weight on your heel so if you don't want things going through the shoe and into your foot you need to make it thicker.

I'm not a shoe historian or whatever but I can imagine the first shoe a hunter-gatherer wanting would just be a leather wrap, essentially - offering a bit of protection but still the 'feel' of the land, which would have been useful.

Thus something like those weird Vibrams would probably be pretty close.

My theory on prominent heels is because they'd have been useful for horseback riding, to keep your feet in stirrups - so a relatively modern invention, but a practical one at first. The fact they make you look taller and the shoes last longer probably helped make them the status quo, rather than people wanting that 16th century shwagga.

It's amazing how hard wearing your feet get if you let them - I've worked on my feet for most of my life, in shite, tough boots, so my feet are hard as fuck on the bottom. I actually can stand on glass without it piercing my foot, so I can only imagine what someone who goes barefoot running or indeed the tribal folk who have never worn shoes must be able to handle.

Heh, I've got a pair of those pictured (I use them as slippers). If you can stomach wearing five-fingers in public they might serve, but as comfortable as they are they do look like you wrapped your feet in rags. The "Icon" version, on the other hand, is comparatively stealthy. They look like trainers at the front (give or take being thin material, so if you wiggle your toes you can see it). I've worn the latter in public and have not yet drawn any comments from friends and colleagues.

>squat-heavy exercise regimens are promoted by bumders

You can tell by the mirror gazers at your average gym weights section that most of it is taken up by bumders. It is one of their conspiracies to try and make you join I think.

A lot of threads on /fat/ seem to start with "I'm doing x, will it help y?" and I'm left wondering where x came from in the first place.

The short answer is yes, OP, doing frequent challenging leg exercises will probably make your lower body muscles grow. Is it the ideal way to do it? I don't know, but if you do it consistently over a long period of time you're likely to get bigger legs.

Interestingly Stan Efferding talks about doing 20 rep sets for other reasons. Something about the hormone response, or cellular response, or oxygen debt from the extreme demands of getting to that 20th rep... I'll have to look it up.

Hilarious, but I'm sure his are would look normal again if he cut some weight and started doing some variation.

They are the weirdest legs I have ever seen.

I had a hat but I turned it into a makeshift balaclava, which I suppose could be a way of getting another hat.

If you come into possession of any money, I highly recommend exchanging it for a couple of Buffs® (or the dirt cheap unbranded ones you can get off Ebay or shops like trespass.)
You can squash them down to nothing in a back pocket, and you've got a hat or scarf whenever you need one.

>Would earplugs work do you think?

Not him but I find headphones help so yeah. Earmuffs also work and that is one of the reasons they exist.

What is happening is cold air is getting into your ear canal which is covered with sensitive nerve endings and lacks anything in the way of protection from the cold. Combined this leads to a brain-freeze in the ear.

My problem with running outside is the first twenty minutes. I can do it on a machine, I can establish a nice rhythm, get over that first wheezing bit, and then I'm good for a long time - outside in the cold, it seems to take a lot longer and there is more chance I would give up early on a run.

Well, since posting in this thread 7 weeks ago about getting back on the cardio, I have religiously walked at least 140k steps a week, cut slightly back on the alcohol, logged all my calories eaten and have lost 8 kilos.

4470 Yoga teacher training
Any thoughts or experiences of yoga teacher training? I'm thinking of doing it as a way of improving my own practice rather than wanting to teach and I've heard it's good for that.

Yes I know some people who have done it and they all did it for that reason - it’s quite hard to make a living at it I understand, so many people give it away for free so as long as that’s what you have in mind I would definitely do it.

They're pretty good if you're serious about cycling, though I always think it's better to just get out there on the road. The issue for me was that it was just a bit boring to pedal in front of the telly and that. I'd either rather be at a gym or out in the real world.

Don't get an air resistance one, whatever you do. Fluid or magnetic is what you want. Also keep in mind that you WILL need some sort of fan pointing at you while you're doing it, you'll get incredibly hot very quickly.

I used them for years when I was training seriously. They work very well if they're set up properly. They don't feel like real riding, but they're close enough. It's boring as fuck, but it's not too bad if you listen to podcasts or whatever. I made a little desk that clipped onto my handlebars so I could catch up on my reading.

If you use slick tyres, a magnetic or fluid trainer and a concrete floor, they're reasonably quiet. Treaded tyres, a fan-based trainer or a hollow wooden floor will make a right old racket. I preferred the units with continually-variable resistance like the CycleOps Magneto - the ones with a resistance adjustment lever are a bit fiddly for interval training.

You'll probably want to do your turbo sessions in an unheated garage or shed, otherwise you'll boil your arse off. You don't get the cooling effect of the wind on a turbo, so you get hot quickly. You might still want to set up a fan if you tend to run hot. If you sweat heavily you'll want to drape a towel over your frame, otherwise your sweat will rot your paintwork.

I can recommend using TrainerRoad. You'd either need a power meter or a cadence and speed sensor. TrainerRoad have a decent blog and podcast.

Turbo manufacturers make these thong contraptions to protect your bike, but most people just use an old towel.
